I couldn't even tell where you had guessed it, just that you had seen one similar

Is that a zip-tie fastener?

I was thinking of a grommet setting tool, the thing that punches holes in leather, etc. to allow you to put in a grommet that seals the hole. Think curtains and shower curtains.

Nope so far, but this tool does have an absolutely adorable name.

I don't even recall what terms I used. It must have been something like "bronze art Utah Mastadon" or somesuch.

Is it a "nibbler"?
Does it nibble metal or something? Almost looks like it's made by Malco.....
